Great school! The principal is very involved and dedicated. Awesome staff everyone is really helpful and friendly. The head custodian is great.

We had a great kindergarten year at Bunker elementary, but first grade was rough. I think the teacher was really overwhelmed. At first, the office staff and principal were dedicated to helping me with anything I needed, then i felt towards the end of the year, my concerns didn't matter because it was "almost" the end of the year. Not a bad school by any means, but I think the teachers are a little overwhelmed.

Great school. My son has Mrs. Erickson this year for Kindergarten and I can't believe the information he's learning and retaining! She's awesome as a teacher. Although my contact with other teachers is limited, it does appear all teachers are super friendly and they have a great 'Parent teacher organization' that takes good care of the school's needs.

Amazing principal and great faculty (as of 2007-08) coming from a private school background, i've found bunker to be very supportive in all areas of education.

I really like how the teachers allow my son to stay advanced in his class. And they are always challenging him so he won't get bored. Gate is a really good program.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the Criterion Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The CRT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nevada. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
